By incorporating mobile technology both Trailhead Labs and OnCell hope to expand our community's curiosity and sense of adventure.
|The great outdoors is waiting to be explored but sometimes it is difficult to get people outside. Our session is focused on two app projects that aimed to deliver engaging content through modern native mobile apps. OnCell and Trailhead Labs will discuss the overall process, specific challenges, and key learnings to introducing a mobile app to your trail system. Join us to learn more about OnCell’s collaborative app with Wegmans Food Markets and Trail Works, Inc. In addition, you will hear about Trailhead Labs’ stewardship first approach for apps for California State Parks and Martha's Vineyard. By incorporating mobile technology both Trailhead Labs and OnCell hope to expand our community's curiosity and sense of adventure. |

This study aimed to compare conventional mountain bike and eMTB use. This was done by investigating 2 questions: (1) What proportion of exercise response is retained for an experienced mountain biker while using an eMTB when compared with a conventional mountain bike? and (2) What are the perceptions and beliefs of experienced mountain bikers toward eMTBs both before and after riding an eMTB?

On average, the majority of survey respondents disapprove of e-bikes being allowed on the trail. This remains true across the board for each of the major user groups; however, mountain bike rider respondents are less likely to disapprove of allowing e-bikes on non-motorized trails and equestrian respondents are more likely to disapprove.

In order to better guide research into the range of potential social and environmental impacts and benefits related to the use of eMTBs on natural surface trails, IMBA and the BPSA are interested in what questions land managers have regarding this new use. The survey explicitly targeted land managers’ experiences and concerns regarding eMTB use on natural surface and/or singletrack trails – not paths or bikeways – although some land managers are responsible for both types of trail infrastructure.
